Did a street food tour with Há and it was amazing. We booked a tour with up to 6 people but it ended up just being the two of us, so a private tour. We had just arrived in Vietnam the previous night so hadn't had time to try much food yet. Há was very knowledgeable not only about the food but about Hanoi as well and we learned many things on the tour. I would absolutely recommend this tour to anyone.

It was a really nice tour!! We rode on the trishaw around the Old Quarter for about an hour and then visit the temple. Hannah-our guide was knowledgeable, she told us everything about the history and the national hero. Final stop is a hidden gem coffee located in a narrow alley, very old and vintage and the egg coffee was the top notch with the flower decor on top. We just love everything!

Dan, our guide was excellent he was very informative about the different food as well as the local culture and various attractions. Although it rained this didn’t detract from the tour and Dan was very conscious about our welfare especially when crossing the road. I could not have asked for a better guide, he also sent us details of other venues to try. 5*****

Tina was our tour guide. She showed us her favourite spots and gave us suggestions for our whole stay. Very welcoming and had a great time! The food was very good.

A fun way to see the city and bits you wouldn’t usually be exposed to. The drivers are friendly and funny and Tony was a delight. Lunch was great too!
